    svchost.exe intensive network usage


    Hi everybody,

    I have high network usage problems with some services in windows: this is a screenshot of the problem (the process highlighted is called "Service Host: Local system" in English).

    Does anybody know how to limit the bandwidth those services can use or, in alternative, how to fix the problem: I cannot browse the internet fast anymore with those services eating all my bandwidth (yes, my maximum bandwidth is VERY low).

    Thank you very much.

    Hi.
    Have you tried following the PIDs using Process Explorer to find out what exactly it is?

    Also, might want to run ADWCleaner, to clear out the junk.

    Also use Process Explorer to check the svchost instance is legit. Hover the mouse of the instance and verify Path is C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe. Any other path means malware

    Thanks a lot for your replies. I've understood which services are running under that instance of svchost. Now what can I do to understand which service is eating up my network connection?

    Thanks in advance.

    Follow the PIDs (drill down all dependencies) using Process Explorer to find out what exactly it is.
